After careful consideration the Nevada State Athletic Commission have in deliberations with the IMMAF and medical experts decided on the following protocol for weight allowance, taking into account the dry, hot climate in Las Vegas and the proximity of air travel to competition.
In view of the tournament format, competitors are advised against dramatic weight cutting and are encouraged to compete at a comfortable walk-around weight that they will be able to maintain for the duration of the competition.
PROTOCOL – IN SUMMARY
• Weigh-ins at registration and every day of competition.
• Sunday July 5th registration weigh-ins: 1,5% allowance over target weight.
• First day of competition: No allowance, athlete must make weight.
• Following days of competition: Total allowance of 4% on target weight. The allowance can be reached already on day two of the competition or later in the week, the athlete may however not at any point weigh-in over 4% of target weight.
